On a night filled with charm and musical brilliance, Oryx International School hosted its first Winter Concert of the year on November 27th, marking a long-awaited return since the last event in 2019 (pre-Covid). The auditorium came alive with the energy and enthusiasm of Year 4, 5, and 6 students who delivered a captivating performance seamlessly blending music, dance, and humor.

The event, spanning over an hour, showcased the artistic prowess of the students, leaving a lasting impression on the memories of all attendees.
